Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
" Once upon a time a man lived in a noisy house", or so he thought. The man, who thinks his creaky, squeaky, leaky house is just too noisy, seeks the advice of the wisest man in town and is shocked by his advice but desperate enough to try anything. Readers will find that they, as well as the man, have much to learn about what real noise is as they follow him in his crazy quest for a quiet house. Simple repetitive text and a predictable story line make this an excellent choice for blossoming young readers. A Viking "Easy-to-Read Classic" -Level 1.
